Why Not Queens?
After the August 1st let down many fans began to believe that Queens and the Willet Point Development would be the obivious landing spot for the Islanders. However, that doesn't seem to be the case for Islanders owner Charles Wang. Here are some reasons why I think Wang doesn't find this option attractive:
1) Local businesses are holding up the project in court
2) Face many political obsticals similar to Nassau
3) He wants to keep the team on Long Island proper ( Nassau/Suffolk)
Whatever the reason may be Wang seems not to be interested in Queens.
